*Application deadline:* April 30, 2019

*Akademie Schloss Solitude*


*Akademie Schloss Solitude* is happy to announce its 17th call for 
applications for its international and interdisciplinary 

The name Akademie Schloss Solitude unites the belief in artistic, 
scientific, and societal exchange with the notion of a refuge, a credo 
which underlays the construction of the Schloss Solitude from the very 
beginning. Residencies at Akademie Schloss Solitude enable fellows to 
devote themselves to their research projects under favorable material 
and intellectual conditions. For them, the Akademie Schloss Solitude 
becomes a transdisciplinary learning unit, a platform for communal 
learning outside the formal educational system, a place which is open to 
a broader and more diverse public.

By experimenting with artistic research practices and new formats, the 
Akademie aims to change societal processes and to stimulate 
intergenerational discourse.

More than 1,400 artists from more than 120 countries have developed and 
advanced projects at the Akademie since its opening in 1990, creating a 
close-knit, global network of Solitude alumni that expands from year to 
year. It is essential for the self-conception of Akademie Schloss 
Solitude that fellows of all spheres of practice are enabled to work and 
research free of daily pressures and presentation deadlines. Besides the 
realization of numerous public events, the online platform /Schlosspost/ 
allows international visibility of fellows and their projects.

International artists are invited to apply from the following spheres of 
practice: *Visual* (visual arts and media), *Aural & Physical* (music 
and performing arts), *Digital *(digital art, gaming, digital 
journalism, digital publishing), *Spatial* (architecture and design), 
*Textual* (literature and language),*Societal* (education, mediation, 
theory),*Scientific* (humanities, social, natural and economic sciences.)

For the first time in its 30-year history, Akademie Schloss Solitude is 
expanding its profile with the addition of a *thematic call. *In 
cooperation withKfW Stiftung 
Akademie Schloss Solitude is launching the new program with the specific 
content-related focus *"Mutations"*. To foster transdisciplinary and 
transcultural dialogue between the arts, sciences and society, young 
professionals from all fields are invited to engage in this topic in a 
focused group conversation. The 9-month program aims to encourage 
critical reflection and artistic production as well as encounters across
